Our Hypoallergenic Guarantee: If you do not react to Poodles or Bichons, then you will not react to a NAID mix, but if you do react to Poodles or Bichons then you will have to get a full NAID.
We Guarantee all our Puppies to be Hypoallergenic, this is for the hair and dander and I will give you 6 hrs. to check all family members with your Puppy, as most Dog Allergie reactions are within 30 minutes to one hour. I will not leave a open ended guarantee for this, because if you decide the Puppy is too much work or just need some money 6 months later, then you can just say, I'm having a reaction the Dog, and want my money back. I give the 6 hours and since I drive all my Puppies to their new homes, I will only be 6 hrs. at the most away, if they were a reaction to turn around and come back, you can't wait 3 days and I'm back home.
We can not guarantee against a Saliva reaction if you or a family member has reactions to saliva from Dogs, this will be hives will break out on your skin where the Puppy licks you, most people with Dog Allergies don't even have this, their Allergies is to the coat or dander of the Dog. I have sold my Puppies to people that can't be licked by a Poodle and all was fine with my Puppy, but in 18yrs. on these Dogs about 8 people have had reactions to the Saliva, after the Puppy got older the Saliva didn't effect that person.
Hip Dysplasia Guarantee is covered in the Contract under the 2 year Genetic Guarantee, even though Hip Dysplasia isn't always Genetic. If your Puppy is diagnosed with hip dysplasia in the first 2 years of life and Surgery Can Not fix this, then we will give you another Puppy for free. We do Not give you money for surgery. This is the risk you take when buying any large breed dog and the risk I take in breeding a large breed dog.
Hips are a very hard thing to guarantee in Dogs, the SV (SV is the same as OFA in the USA) in Germany, has proven that only around 30% of Hip Dysplasia come from Genetics, the rest is from the Dogs Environment, over weight, too fast of Growth, kept in a crate for hours each day, running up and down stairs, jumping off high things to a hard surface, jumping out of a vehicle to the ground ect... Once a Puppy is delivered all these things are out of my control, none of my Dogs have Hip Dysplasia, or I would never be breeding them. Ester-C has been proven to help develop proper Hip development.

The knowledge that hip dysplasia has a genetic basis allows us to make decisions about breeding. Dogs that are known to be dysplastic should not be bred. The mating of two affected dogs produces an incidence of 75 percent in offspring – in other words, 3 out of 4 puppies produced by two dysplastic dogs will themselves develop hip dysplasia. In contrast, on average only 25 percent of offspring of a mating between two healthy dogs will develop hip dysplasia. There is clearly an advantage to a mating between normal dogs. By limiting the breeding population to only those dogs with healthy hips, we can lower the number of new cases of hip dysplasia that will appear in the coming generations.
You see on average 25% of Puppies from Healthy Dogs will develop Hip Dysplasia. How can any breeder Guarantee a Puppy will not get Hip Dysplasia.
I'm currently running at around a 3% ratio on Hip Dysplasia out of this Kennel. It kills me to have any, but we still have a very small percentage. Look at the Official OFA stats below on how common Hip Dysplasia is. Watch the You Tube video's below on Hip Dysplasia as well.
Vitamin C Prevents Hip Dysplasia Vitamin C deficiencies have recently been linked to hip dysplasia in dogs. A veterinarian did a controlled study to prove this link. Basically, the study went like this: Dysplastic German shepherds were bred together, the mother was given vitamin C throughout her pregnancy and the pups, when born, were also supplemented with vitamin C until the age of two years old. At 2 years old all the pups were checked for hip dysplasia. None were dysplastic!

Belfield "Now that CHD is a systemic condition we can get on with the business of saving these canines from this crippling disease. Lets begin eliminating some myths that have prevailed over the past fifty years. Unilateral CHD, does not exist. One normal hip and the other subluxted is not CHD this is simply an injury. Since the experts recognize that all joints can be involved in slow mineralization why the one hip will remain normal. Since collagen synthesis is involved in CHD, another systemic problem, why will one hip and not the other be involved. CHD must be in both hip joints. The next issue, is CHD an inherited disease? I have never been a proponent of this concept. To me, it has always been a biochemical problem. Regardless if CHD is genetic or not, it does have systemic implications which means it can be prevented and controlled; I have had success in this area for more than twenty years". http://www.belfield.com/article9.html http://www.belfield.com/home.html Dogs Don't Lie: Vitamin C is Man's Best Friend by Kevin Kolodziejski http://www.afpafitness.com/articles/DogsDonLie.htm Unilateral hip dysplaysia is always environmental. http://www.showdogsupersite.com/hips.html
